Suffering from nursing home abuse can be an emotionally difficult and legally challenging situation. In most cases, incidents of abuse are rarely reported to the proper authorities. Abuse can take many different forms – ranging from neglect to physical assault and sometimes, suspiciously, death. If the abuse or neglect was due to the action of a nursing home facility or elder care employee, an injury lawyer can help navigate the legal system and get the money you deserve.
